Help I need a lense

After recieving my cannon 350d and taking a few shots straight out of the box I was very impressed with the camera. Being totally new to SLR photography I was pleased to see it has basic settings and autofocus, enabling me to take descent pictures straight away and the knowledge that with practice better quality pictures are possible.

I need a new lense because the stock lense is great for close shots but I need a lense with more zooooom aswell.

Here are a couple of my 1st efforts..

















Nothing special I know but I'm sure with practice this camera can perform really well.

I went to shoot some planes at Nottingham East Midlands and as you can see I need more zoom.





As I have just spent 500quid on the camera, I dont want to shell out much more yet.

I found this lense can any of you give me the pros and cons with it?

If you know of a better lense at around the same price I would appreciate the links. :smashin:


Stupid question alert!!! After some of the lenses it says (Minolta AF) (Sigma AF) (Pentax AF) (Canon AF) (Nikon AF) I take it this means that the lense will fit the model in () does af mean auto focus?

PS. I know absolutely nothing about SLR so laymans terms guys ;)
